Gardaí seize barking dogs after stopping van

Gardaí say they seized eight dogs believed to worth around €5,000 in Co Tipperary yesterday (4 June).

The seizure came at a speed check on the M8 motorway at Ashill, Thurles, after gardaí stopped a van which was exceeding the speed limit

Barking

While speaking to the driver, gardaí heard dogs barking in the rear of the van.

They then searched the van and found the eight dogs, which were lurchers, beagles and a border terrier.

Shelter

Gardaí said the driver and passenger could give no explanation on the ownership of the dogs, which were not microchipped and are currently in a local animal shelter.

An investigation is continuing and no arrests have been made.
